2000 - Carefully take the front panel off that surrounds the radio and temperature buttons, it will snap straight out. Wiggle the radio out about two inches, it is a tight fit. Get the serial number off the radio. It is on a sticker on the top, left side. Call a Mitsubishi dealer with the serial number. They will want proof of ownership, so have the title ready. After putting in the four digit serial number, hit the cd button and that enters it.The code is also written on an antitheft card that comes with the car and may be written in the owners manual in one of the back pages.
<BR> 1999 - Carefully remove the cup holder by pulling it out, then you will see the sticker with the radio serial number.
<BR> Other Years - I don't know an easy way to get the radio serial number, find a radio install savy person and ask them to help you. My dealership said they would do it for me and charge me for 30-60 mins worth of labor.. (At $75/hour) <BR> <BR>
Leave the "off" display on for 1 hour uninterupted, then it will automatically reset back to UNLOCK CODE.
<BR> When you turn it back on again after that time has passed it will ask for "code". <BR> <BR>
Call your local MItsubishi dealership and ask for the service department.
<BR>They have a computer program where they punch in the serial number from your radio (you have to supply the number) and it will tell them the UNLOCK CODE for your radio. My dealership offered to give it to me free over the phone, if I knew my radio serial number. Enter the code using the buttons on your radio. And write the code down, this will show up everytime your radio looses connection to its power source - the car battery.

Installing an aftermarket radio in a 2001 montero sport, and can not get power to the radio. The only piece not plugged in from the old wiring is the small black plug (it looks like an "S" cable...

That almost sounds like it had a stock amplifier. Did you purchase the correct wiring harness? If you ordered one for your vehicle and didn't specify that it had an amp, it won't take that into consideration, and thus no way to plug it in. Check to see if a harness is availble for your vehicle. Hope this helps.

I need instructions on how to unlock my radio. I have a 1998 Honda Accord..

A lot of radio codes come with the manual, and are subsequently reset by the consumer. You will have to get hold of a Honda Dealer, and check with their service department to see what can be done.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

I had the battery changed in my 1998 porsche Boxster and need a code for the radio to work - I can't find my owner's manual with the code in it.

you may be required to remove the radio from the dash in order to obtain the serial number on the radio... but maybe not...
Call the dealership and ask to speek with someone about your radio code...

To nip problems like this in the bud... there is a small device you can purchass for a few doillars that you plug into the cig. lighter socket to keep electronics like radios from having to be reset when servicing the battery... maybe chack into one of those for next time?

I purchased a Montero Sport JA4LS3IH8XP011871 from a Government auction. When I got the car battery was dead. I got a new battery started the car turned on the radio with no problems. Did'nt use the car...

My best solution is to go to a dealer. Unless you can track down the previous owner if they put the code on there. The dealer is going to cost a little, otherwise you can just try a few simple ones, if it is still a factory one it is probably a simple code like"0000" or "1234". Good luck. I would definately go to a dealer or depending on how much the dealer costs and how good that factory radio is, just buy an aftermarket one, it is probably more expensive but it might be a better choice in the long run. I hope I could help.

Radio code for montero sport

The dealer can give it to you if you come in with title, registration, and photo ID. They may charge you up to an hour's labor to do this, so make sure they write it down and show you how to enter it.
